How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done? 06/16/2017Having regular air conditioning service done at least once a year can help extend the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Manassas Park summertime, have the experts at Woody's Sudden Service Inc conduct your annual air conditioning service. Certain tasks should always be completed during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. As stated by energy.gov, your specialist should always: Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if necessary, look for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector. If a refrigerant evacuation is necessary, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illicitly freeing it to the air. Look for proper airflow throughout the system. Confirm the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation. Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections. Inspect the exactness of the thermostat. When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters routinely is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help guarantee your air conditioner continues to run at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your annual air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it habitually. We suggest checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s advice. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual influences in your home, like how much dust gets into your home and whether or not you have pets.
